I have been employed at Chelan pud for just over sixteen years. I was hired as a fiber optics installer and moved up the ranks to foreman before getting a lineman apprenticeship. I completed my apprenticeship in three years and worked as a lineman for several years before moving on to becoming a foreman for several years. I ran a crew through several complicated and high profile and customer sensitive jobs with success. After working as a line crew foreman I took a job as a line serviceman and worked in that for about a year until I accepted a line superintendent position. I worked as a Superintendent for two years before being promoted to Operations Manager for which i worked for two more years leading up to my promotion to Director of Electric and Fiber Operations which I have enjoyed for the last year. Prior to my time at the Pud I built homes and served four honorable years in the us navy as an aircraft mechanic on board a couple different aircraft carriers. I am married and the proud father of two sons and one daughter.
